Pours a slightly hazy golden color with a one inch off white head that left nice lacing. Smells of citrus and pine. Tastes of orange, pineapple, orange peel, pine and a very nice malty presence. Medium bodied, lightly carbonated, slightly dry mouth feel.

Copper with a twinge of haze, moderate carbonation and 4 fingers of off white, copper tinged head.

Smells of pine, hops, caramel, pineapple, mangos, and red chilies.

The taste follows the nose. A bouquet of tropical fruits and pine fixings.

Medium body with little carbonation. Smooth and deceptive ABV.

Got this in Chiang Mai, Thailand. Excellent brew. Survived the long voyage from Wyoming to Thailand, and its still delicious. Drinking June 13th, 2018.

Full bodied hoppy beautifulness. Had never heard of or seen this brewer's work product until I happened upon it in an upstate New York grocery store. Sehr gut!

Pours a golden straw color with a finger of head. The nose has both citrusy and dank notes. The flavor profile has both a solid malt backbone and more than a healthy dose of resiny hops on the finish.

12 oz. can poured into a willibecher.

A- Golden color with a bit of haze. Head is off-white. Fairly dense with some decent retention.

S- Citrus, pine, faint tropical notes. Clean and fresh aroma, slightly juicy.

T- Clean, sweet citrus, orange and tropical pineapple. Malt shows up light, but noticeably toasty. Not a ton of depth, but nice flavor.

M- Body is medium-light. Sweet throughout with a mostly clean finish. A faint dryness lingers.

O- Great flavors, though quite sweet for an IPA.
